and independence. he says obama can do better at state than susan rice. so, i mean this isn't a guy known for his conservative leaning but he has a problem with her silence in the months, the months that followed, she just now spoke out about why she said what she said. i will play that sound in a minute but, she has been silent for a really long time, brad. >> she has been silent and there is reason for it because she has been used by the administration, just following orders is not good enough. i was asked to go on fox news on 9/12. in the morning of 9/12 i said based on my experience there is no way this was in the a terrorist attack. it was the anniversary of 9/11. people don't come to a protest with ipgs and kind of artillery and ways of attacks that took place. clear to me, susan rice, who had a lot better information than i had as a citizen didn't push back on the information she is a dupe and shouldn't be put into a position of authority where she will do whatever she is told to do. that is not what a secretary of state should be doing, acting or expects others to give her orders that she
leaders expect another face to face meeting with president obama as soon as this week. >> republican senator john mccain backed off from fiery criticism of susan rice about the 9/11 attack against the u.s. diplomatic post in benghazi libya. >> i think she deserves the ability to explain herself and her position just as she said. but she's not the problem. the problem is the president of the united states who on -- in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terrorist attack, he hadn 't. >> rice has maintained she based her statements on protesters on cia intelligence available at the time. four americans including u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens were killed. >>> police are making progress in recovering some 2 million donations made to the salvation early. police in toronto said earlier in the year they discovered a person had made off with donations of toys and good. tips led them to a trailer where they found toys and food. >> officers did find toys, personal items as well. items that were donated to the salvation army. >> the salvation army believes that the

. they anticipate a second face- to-face meeting with president obama as soon as this week. >>> also in washington republican senator john mccain backed off from fiery criticism of un un ambassador susan rice about the attack in libya. >> i think she deserved the ability to explain herself and her position as she said, but she is not the problem. the prose problem is that the president of the united states, who in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terrorist attack. he hadn't. >> senator mccain threatened to block susan rice's nomination for secretary of state. rice has maintained that she based her statements blaming the tack on protesters on cia information at the time. >>> a new gallup poll shows that the afternoon ideal weight for men was 185 pounds. that is up 14 pounds since 1990. the average actual weight for men was 196 pounds up 16 pounds. for women, the ideal weight was 140 pounds. that is up 11 pounds since 1990. the actual weight for women, 156 pounds, also up 14. >>> powerball lottery officials say they expect their jackpot tuesday to reach $425 million. that wi
scandal that would take down, you know, an official within the obama administration and they completely failed. and not only did they fail, it backfired. they lost credibility on their reporting as you just highlighted. susan rice is more popular and more well known than she was at the beginning and mccain looks humiliated by trying to create this committee out of full cloth. that went know where so fox has to kind of think now what is our role in the coming years if we can't -- if we can't use all of our energy and affect a change here. >> fox is a propaganda machine. >> joe, i want to be fair, there was one voice over there that tried to make a little sense and that was late in the campaign, was geraldo rivera. listen to what geraldo said. >> i think we have to stop politicizing. we're getting away from the real issue, which is, why wasn't there security before this happened? because that's the issue. but these preposterous allegations, reckless allegations -- do weapon want to know what happened? do we want to try and influence the election with a tragedy that happened in north afric
the two of them there, do you think he will take on this fight, and name susan rice to be secretary of state, bill, and if he were to do so do you think the senate will confirm her? >> president obama hasn't confided in me, who the secretary of state appointment is, i know that is a shock, i rather think he'll appoint her and i think, i'm not a huge fan of hers but i think she's likely to be confirmed by the senate and people might decide, given the range of alternative appointments, maybe she's not -- john kerry might be a worse secretary of state. so, maybe, one goes ahead and lets him have the secretary of state he wants or one vote against it, as senators will say she was not forthcoming, obviously in september and should have known better than to say what she said, and vote against it but since democrats control the senate i'm assuming she'll get confirmed. >> chris: what is wrong with john kerry as secretary of state. obviously he is not who you would appoint but as a democratic... >> susan rice is more interventionist than john kerry. he's the guy who has been against -- ever
. this is the second sunday in a row where he is laying the groundwork for letting susan rice vhave her say if she's nominated. this seems prudent because carrying on a campaign against her when you don't know for sure if obama wants to nominate her can only go so far until something else happens. what senator mccain said two weeks ago is i think he wants an apology from her. that's the word he used. i don't know if he would get that because the administration says there's nothing to apologize for when it comes to ambassador rice. but, yes, change of tone, maybe a change of what his position will be when and if she's nominated. >> john, if i can finish with you, john, do you think that in light of what happened, the attacks on susan rice and now this apparent retreat, do you think that strengthened the president's desire, if it is there, for her to become secretary of state? >> look, i think the president's desire to nominate susan rice was made very clear, if, indeed, thaes what he wants to do, was made very clear at the press conference he had last week or so where he gave a full-throated defens
and her handling of the deadly attack on the consulate in libya. ambassador rice was under fire for appearances on the television immediately after the attack where she blamed it on the youtube video. many vocal critics, like senator john mccain are turning up the heat on president obama and the state department. >> the problem is the president of the united states in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terrorist attack. he hadn't. jon: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington. she has more on all of this. so this shift in focus to the state department, what are we learning about that, catherine? report thank you, jon, and good morning. we may learn early as this week when secretary of state hillary clinton will testify on capitol hill about the warnings and intelligence leading up to the 9/11 attack on the consulate. on sunday talk shows leading republicans pointed to what they believe is the culpability of clinton's state department. >> why weren't the warnings about the need for security heeded? why weren't the requests fo
. >> that's an end, i hope, to the vicious and baseless character attack that has made rice the center of a witch hunt by the right even though she has done nothing to disqualify herself. mccain tried to make her unnominatable but made it so obama will look weak if he doesn't nominate her. he asserted an inappropriate political cover-up. he also gave us the horrible optics of he and lindsey graham as old white establishment folks wrongly and repeatedly attacking a much younger black woman moments after an election in which blacks and women went strongly blue. looks like the gop is already laying the foundation for losing in 2016. i leave it to you to decide how much of the tarring of rice as incompetent and unqualified is about the myth of black inferiority and female inferiority and how much is about mccain flailing at anyone's in arm's reach desperate for a dingy as he feels himself sinking. as opposed to the career of martin bashir which is only rising up and up. >> it's november the 26th, and republicans signal they're willing to concede they will now accept mitt romney's tax plan.
